What is a Church?

Many people may go to church, but have you ever stopped and asked, “what is a church”? Is it a building? Is it a social gathering? I am sure that as I asked that question, many answers may have popped into your head. How does the Bible describe a church?

In Numbers 8:1-2 we read, “8 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron, and say to him, ‘When you arrange the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light in front of the lampstand.’” In the Book of Revelation, we read that the seven lampstands are churches. The Bible tells us that the purpose of the Lord’s church is to shine His light into the darkness all around us.

The next time you go to your local church, ask yourself what can you do at your church to shine His light.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
